banking center. >> it is primarily a finance center. we have been working to expand our energy base as well with duke energy as kind of a hub of that. but historically has been finance center. we took strong hit in 2008 when wachovia and bank of america both got hit pretty strong. that said, it's still finance town. >> ann in aurora, colorado, is our next caller. she's on our line for independents. go ahead, ann. >> hi, thank you. i used to work for one of the large financial firms and interested because north carolina is a large financial center and romney touted as businessman to get the economy going. but he said that he's going to reverse frank dodd and i think he was pandering to tea partiers after that. so i think that was maintained to pandering to the independents. as best i can tell, he and ryan's policy assimilates accounts in britain, which is now in a full-blown recession. so i think no one can tell what romney is truly saying or speaking. he changes frequently. i think he says whatever to close the deal on wall street, and i think also he's saying anything to close the

, the department of energy, and others that will need to respond very quickly. we have had a chance to talk to regional officials as well. i just had a phone call with the governors of the potentially impacted states and cities in the region. at this stage everyone is confident that the staging process, the positioning of resources, commodities, and equipment that will be needed to respond to the storm are in place. as craig has emphasized, this has not made landfall yet. we do not yet know where it will hit, where we're going to see the biggest impacts. that is exactly why it is so important for us to respond big and fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all of the members of the team for the outstanding work they're doing, but the other thing that makes this storm unique is that we anticipate it will be slow moving. meaning it may take a long time not only to clear, but to get, for example, power companies back in to clear out the trees and put things back in place so that folks can start moving back home. my main message to everyone involved is that we have to take
